ORLANDO, Fla. — By far the biggest attendance at last week’s Orgill fall market was by Castle dealers, with 105 Castle Building Centre locations from across Canada represented at the hardware buying show. Castle has a preferred vendor partnership with Orgill as hardware supplier of choice for the buying group’s members.
Orgill continues to add products for its Canadian customers, and now claims to have more than 50,000 Canadian-compliant. Many of those SKUs were showcased in a new 14,000-square-foot model store named “Kodiak Trail Hardware & Supply,” featuring a completely Canadian-compliant assortment. This new store is almost double the size of the Windsor Falls model store featured in 2013.
“Castle members now enjoy a well-rounded product assortment through our partners at Orgill,” said James Jones, vice president, national marketing for Castle, “and additional Canadian vendor products are being added weekly.”
